Donald Trump is not the first president to abuse the power of the pardon, but with his latest acts of clemency, our wannabe dictator has crossed lines our nation’s founders never imagined and no prior president ever dared to go — and with good reason.

This week, Stu and AJ discuss the good and the bad of presidential clemency, the most ironic pardon in U.S. history, and why Trump’s actions are SO MUCH more dangerous than any of his predecessors.

PLUS! We get ready to show Congress, the nation, and the watching world that we are ready to impeach and remove Trump by registering for the historic nationwide mobilization on the eve of Trump’s impeachment vote at impeach.org.

Moment of Uplift: Baldwin, Florida — one of America’s most conservative towns — needed a place to buy groceries, so the mayor set up a government-run store. Unlike almost everything Republicans give the label to, this IS socialism. The residents love it and so do we!

This is your country for the week of December 2, 2019!
